Don't browse the XBL Marketplace when you're tired.

Yesterday, whilst sitting in The Batcave waiting for my friend to call, trying desperately to stay awake after two days of minimal sleep I decided to browse the Xbox Live Marketplace. With 400 Microsoft Points in the bank I came to the conclusion that I needed to know how much the Jill Valentine gettup cost, because I wanted it.

Every now I and then when I get a chance, I like to see what's new in the Game Styles section.. but this time it was different. I was determined to get the Jill Valentine outfit. After locating it, I realized I had just enough. It was 320 MS Points. I was good to go. But, like a preteen at an Abercrombie store, I kept switching back and forth between outfits, previewing to see what it would look like.. Big mistake.

In my lack of alertness, I went to the beginning of the Resident Evil 5 merch section and hit the back button, which for some reason brought me to a payment screen. I quickly hit the back button again, only to realize that I had been pressing the A button and that I had now spent 240 of my Microsoft Points, on a fucking crank. A CRANK! What the hell am I going to do with a crank Microsoft? And now I don't even have enough for the stupid outfit!

So kids, the lesson of the day is don't consider buying things when you're tired, drunk, or incoherent in any way. You might end up with... A CRANK.

New Wii, Dead Space, and site update.

Hey all, hope everyone is having a killer summer. Things have been crazy this past month and I'm quite happy to announce that I will be giving the website a makeover sometime in the next few weeks. I am also in the process of writing and producing several YouTube videos, which I plan to post simultaneously.

In other news, I just recently got a Wii, in black! And, in a dire attempt to deplete my college savings (not really), I'm already on the hunt to collect all of the Resident Evil games on the GameCube.. as well as a few of the Mario titles, though I must say I am quite disappointed that they are so gosh darn expensive! I did manage to pick up the Metroid Prime Trilogy though, as well as some Wii guns for when I get House of the Dead: Overkill. Duel wield.. it's gonna be EPIC.

If you follow me on twitter you might have noticed that I'm currently balls deep into Dead Space. Now, let me tell you something, a secret if you will.. I don't normally scare easily. Bioshock, Resident Evil.. they didn't do it for me in the scare department. Creepy? Yes, of course, but they lacked the "jump up in fright and play it off like you're about to dance" factor. This game- it does wonderful things to my brain, while evoking the warm fuzzy memories I still have from playing DOOM. Also, I can definitely say that being an Event Horizon fan makes it hard for me not to enjoy myself. I'm not too far into it yet (I just encountered mutant babies.. which, might I add, WAS AWESOME) so I'm sure I'll have more to add once I get further in and beat it.. which is probably never, because I decided to play it on hard my first time. Go big or go home?

I'm also taking summer courses at the moment, which, normally would be kind of lame. However, considering we're half way through the term and I've already convinced my teacher to let us watch Spaceballs, I'd say it's going pretty good so far.

Ninja Cat owns your soul.

A co-worker showed this video to me at work today. I couldn't keep it to myself.. It's just too damn amazing.

It whispers sweet sweet nothings to me.

Yesterday was the best day ever. I traded in my old Arcade 360 system for the sleek new Xbox 360, which I had preordered. Considering I was pushing the two year mark with my Arcade I think I made a good investment. It really is such a beautiful piece of technology. I love how quiet it is, and the sexy noises it makes when I turn it on or eject a disc. That sounded dirty didn't it? Crap.

Carpe Diem

Find something that motivates you and push yourself to the limit. Challenge yourself. That which doesn't kill you will only make you stronger. Nothing is predetermined. We all have the ability to create our own fate.
